(off topic for the u-boot list; this is a Linux problem.  You really
should ask on the arm linux mailing list)

Technically it's a kernel panic (the kernel doesn't know what it
should do, so it stops).  It cannot mount the root filesystem image
that you've given it.  Throwing an exception is something else.

What format are you using for your initrd?  ext2?  Do you have the
filesystem configured into your kernel?
